WHAT OUR INTERNS ARE SAYING…

“Interning at Westbound Communications was the one of the best decisions I made for my professional career. At Westbound, interns work hard and learn every day. I was introduced to the agency life and was able to strengthen my writing skills, think critically and work efficiently to meet the needs of the clients. The Westbound team cares about their interns and creates a learning experience that cannot be found elsewhere.”
 Katrina Presto, former Westbound intern

“Westbound Communications is the kind of agency where interns go to become professionals.  The combination of experienced practitioners and excellent teachers make Westbound the perfect place to grow professionally and learn the ropes of agency life. In my experience at Westbound, I was able to work with my colleagues to improve my writing, pitching and organizational skills. The talented Westbound staff truly make their interns feel like a part of the team, offering involvement in a number of agency initiatives.  Westbound interns should expect to stay busy, learn daily and leave their internship more prepared for the professional world of public relations than when they started.”
– Alexis Linn, former Westbound intern
